Everyone who has read William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, knows that Hamlet treated the women in his life very poorly, even his own mother, the woman that raised him. In the beginning of the play, I understand where his frustration is coming from and why he is so angry with his mother. Almost two months has passed… Read more Misogyny in Hamlet
Moana – Women Power Yeehaw!
I am a sucker for Disney movies and I am twenty years old. Do I have a problem or am I just childish? I would say it is my guilty pleasure but I am not guilty about it. I know most of the words from this whole movie and you better believe I have the… Read more Moana – Women Power Yeehaw!

When it comes to Shakespearean literature, you could not find a bigger fan than me. Most freshman in high school despise reading Romeo and Juliet because they simply do not understand. But me? I raised my hand to volunteer for every part to read aloud in front of the class. Sophomore year, my love grew… Read more Was Shakespeare Sexist or Did He Just Have a Small Penis?
